Barcelona could allow Robert Lewandowski to leave as free agent in 2025
The Polish striker has struggled this season at Barca
Robert Lewandowski’s contract contains a games-played clause, which might allow Barcelona to void it after the current campaign.
Sport has stated that Lewandowski’s contract contains a break clause, meaning Barcelona has the option to end it at any time. The clause gives Barcelona the right to sever Lewandowski’s multimillion-dollar contract if the Pole fails to begin or play for more than 45 minutes in over fifty-five per cent of matches this campaign.
Despite recording decent goal and assist totals this season, Lewandowski has not been at his illustrious best. The iconic striker raised expectations when he joined from Bayern Munich and was crucial to the team’s La Liga triumph the previous year.
But due to Barcelona’s on-field shortcomings this year, blame has been placed on Lewandowski’s occasionally subpar play. The team may be aiming to reduce the forward’s salary because he is a forward on an extraordinarily high salary at a club with financial difficulties.

Despite earning a single penalty, Lewandowski was the league’s leading scorer the previous season and was given the Pichichi Trophy. Since Dani Guiza in 2008, he became the first player to do this. This time around, Jude Bellingham tops the rankings.
logically, Lewandowski is expected to start or play for over 45 minutes in over fifty-five per cent of Barcelona’s games, excluding injury. The striker is a key component of the team’s ambitions this upcoming campaign and is the team’s top scorer. Tomorrow they play host to Atletico Madrid.
According to the article, Barcelona would save €26 million in salary that Lewandowski would have otherwise been entitled to if he were released a year early.
Given Barca’s extensively reported financial difficulties in recent years, it might be a wise decision to let the 36-year-old striker go if he isn’t playing much. That way, the club can save money that could be used somewhere.
